A Journey of Chi

Like many, I’m going to spend the weekend binging the latest Netflix / Marvel series Iron Fist. Will it live up to the likes of Daredevil and Jessica Jones? Will it fall flat? How will it setup The Defenders?

Join me, won’t you?

Wrap Up

Iron Fist ultimately falls very short of the high standards its predecesors set. The plot is meandering, the writing weak at best and a lead that can’t handle the shoes he’s been asked to fill.

There are inklings of something greater here. Unfortunately, the powers that be weren’t equipped to bring them to fruition.

The Score

2.5 / 5
